The SLX high output ultraviolet fixture from UV Resources disinfects HVACR airstreams, cooling coils, and drain pans. The SLX fixture, which stands for Single Lamp eXterior-mounted fixture, offers facility managers and building owners an option to disinfect air and surfaces that are typically inaccessible from inside the air handler. Additionally, when applied adjacent to the cooling coil, the company says the high output lamps can deliver improved HVAC heat transfer, decrease energy use, reduce maintenance downtime, and improve IAQ.
The SLX lamps provide 360-degrees of high UV-C intensity and mounts to the exterior of supply, return, or exhaust plenums or ducts. The lamps are ideal for a full-range of applications including air streams of 33ºF to 170ºF, 100-percent rh, and any velocity.
The SLX fixture comes standard with the EncapsuLamp™ (FEP lamp coating) technology, which helps to protect installers, plenums, and air streams from lamp residues such as gas, mercury, and glass should an accidental lamp break occur. In addition, it insulates the lamp’s surface from the fluctuating temperatures of AC systems, which, according to UV Resources, can affect lamp output and performance.
